Abstract: The title compound 1-OPBB, C19H19BrO2, contains a dechlorinated and hydrogenated isodrin backbone with an anti-4-bromobenzoate substituent at one of the methano bridges. The dihedral angle between the CO2 ester plane and the benzene ring plane is 8.5 (2)°. In the crystal, the ester groups stack over benzene rings: the molecules pack as conformational enantiomers, with nearest parallel benzene ring planes separated by a perpendicular distance of 3.339 (1) Å. The nearest benzene-ring centroids are 5.266 (1) Å apart. Possible structural correlation with enhanced solvolytic reactivity is investigated.
